2014 Campus Drive

Dear Minnesota State Mankato Faculty, Staff, Retirees, and Emeriti:

"You leave Mankato when Mankato is done with you."

That's what some of you told us 17 years ago when we brought our family to Mankato for Scott's temporary, one-year appointment as an assistant professor of construction management.

You were right, and we're so glad. After 17 years, we're proud to call Mankato our home and we're proud of our service to this great University. The Campus Drive is an annual chance for us to give to the programs that mean the most to us. Over the years, those have been:

  • Construction management, where Scott taught and served as chair for many years.
  • KMSU, across the hall from Ann's longtime office in University Advancement.
  • And Classified Professional Development, which is a reference within the President’s Commission on the Status of Women fund. Administrative assistants makes the world go 'round, and deserve all the support we can give them.

Please, give some thought to which MSU programs mean the most to you. Write your check or fill out your payroll deduction form to benefit those programs. You'll make a difference for today's MSU community and for those who will follow in your footsteps -- the people who arrive thinking it's a temporary, short-term thing, and end up making Minnesota State Mankato their home and their passion.

Join us.
